From the Publisher

Hi, y’all!

This book is my proudest achievement so far, and I just have to tell y’all why I am so excited about it. It’s a book of classic dishes, dedicated to a whole new generation of cooks—for every bride, graduate, and anyone who has a love of a great Southern meal. My family is growing and expanding all the time. We’re blessed with marriages and grandbabies, and so sharing these recipes for honest, down-home dishes feels like passing a generation’s worth of stovetop secrets on to my family, and yours.

I’ve been cooking and eating Southern food my whole life, and I can tell you that every meal you make from this book will be a mouthful of our one-of-a-kind spirit and traditions. These recipes showcase the diversity and ingenuity of Southern cuisine, from Cajun to Low-Country and beyond, highlighting the deep cultural richness of our gumbos and collards, our barbecues and pies. You may remember a few beloved classics from The Lady & Sons, but nearly all of these recipes are brand-new—and I think you’ll find that they are all mouthwateringly delicious. It is, without a doubt, a true Southern cooking bible.

I sincerely hope that this book will take its place in your kitchen for many years to come, as I know it will in mine. Here’s to happy cooking—and the best part, happy eating, y’all!

Best dishes,

Paula Deen

1. Salt-Baked Venison for 18

with LIZ JOHNSON ON A SUNDAY NIGHT in mid-October, a group of mostly young chefs is gathered in a Soho loft, watching as Stephan Bogardus, the chef at the North Fork Table, whips out the crossbow that he used to kill a deer 11 days earlier—the same deer that is sitting on a bed of hay in the kitchen, waiting to be carved. The deer and the guests are all here because Liz Johnson, the 26-year-old chef at the tiny, much-adored new French bistro Mimi, has requested their attendance. It’s in some ways an early farewell party, as Johnson and her fiancé, Will Aghajanian, also a chef at Mimi, will be

ROBIN RAISFELD AND ROB PATRONITE 90 E. 10th St., nr. Fourth Ave.; 917-388-3546 YOU CAN’T OPEN a Japanese chain restaurant in New York these days without a good gimmick. There’s Ichiran, the East Williamsburg ramen shop that sends you off alone to contemplate life and soup in a human feeding pen called a “flavor concentration booth.” And now comes Ikinari Steak, which offers you the opportunity to tuck into your sirloin while standing up at a podiumlike table as if you were about to deliver a speech between bites. The funny thing is, the concept not only works—it works well. Chomping beefste
